Delivery Interface 

Use

The delivery interface groups all ALE and EDI outputs with reference to the delivery. Here, the EDI output is used mostly for external communication, and ALE output for internal communication. In the standard system, the following outputs are defined:

Integration

The shipping notification is the advance announcement of the delivery at the customer. When the forwarding agent makes this announcement (shipping order), the delivery data is transmitted so that the agent can organize the pickup and delivery of the goods on behalf of the customer.

The shipping order and the shipping confirmation serve to communicate with a warehousing contractor / service agent. The latter supervises the warehouse and is responsible for the delivery. The contractor also either takes care of the delivery himself/herself or commissions a service agent.

The warehouse order and the warehouse verification both serve to connect a company's own external system (external software) with Warehouse Management.

The following overview shows the output flow:

All outputs are based on the basis IDoc type DELVRY01.

Features

Output that is outbound contains the complete structure, that is, all the fields in the individual segments are supplied with data.

In the case of inbound output, only certain fields in the segments for delivery header, delivery item, and shipping units are used. Here you have control segments at your disposal in order to initiate the required behavior when you are processing the output.

Below you find a description of the options for inbound output with the required fields:

  1. Picking verification without flow records.
  2. This type of verification is used if the delivery items in the central system are set in Customizing as non-picking-relevant. The picked quantities are reported by the subsystem to the central system. There, the delivery quantity is adjusted, if allowed. In the IDoc, the following fields must have data:

    E1EDL20-VBELN

    E1EDL24-POSNR

    E1EDL24-MATNR

    E1EDL24-LFIMG

    E1EDL19-QUALF = 'QUA'

  3. Picking verification with flow records
  4. If, in the central system, the items are set as relevant for picking, the picked quantities can be reported to the central system. However, only the complete, picked quantity of an item can be taken. Multiple reporting with an accumulated figure for the reported quantities is not allowed. So that the picking flow records can be updated, the following IDoc field must also be transmitted, in addition to the fields described under step 1.

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'PIC'

  5. Verification of batch split items from the subsystem

If batch split items occur in the central system, the original item must not be reported. Instead, the new items are transferred as follows:

E1EDL24-POSNR = Item number of batch split item

E1EDL24-MATNR

E1EDL24-CHARG

E1EDL24-LFIMG

E1EDL24-HIPOS = Item number of main item

E1EDL19-QUALF = 'BAS'

If there is no batch splitting, the batch for the main item can be verified.

E1EDL24-POSNR = Item number of batch split item

E1EDL24-MATNR

E1EDL24-CHARG

E1EDL24-LFIMG

  1. Weight and volume verification
  2. It is possible to report back (verify) the gross weight, net weight, and the volume for the entire delivery or for individual items. Using the qualifier in the segments E1EDL18 and E1EDL19, you can control which fields are to be updated in the delivery.

    E1EDL20-VBELN

    E1EDL20-BTGEW

    E1EDL20-NTGEW

    E1EDL20-GEWEI

    E1EDL20-VOLUM

    E1EDL20-VOLEH

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'GWT'

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'NWT'

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'VOL'

    E1EDL24-POSNR

    E1EDL24-MATNR

    E1EDL24-NTGEW

    E1EDL24-BRGEW

    E1EDL24-GEWEI

    E1EDL24-VOLUM

    E1EDL24-VOLEH

    E1EDL19-QUALF = 'GWT'

    E1EDL19-QUALF = 'NWT'

    E1EDL19-QUALF = 'VOL'

  3. Post delivery goods issue
  4. For the goods issue posting, the following additional field must exist.

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'PGI'

  5. Delete delivery
  6. You can delete a delivery in the subsystem if the following fields are transmitted.

    E1EDL20-VBELN

    E1EDL18-QUALF = 'DEL'

  7. Packing verification (only for creating shipping units)

When you report back (that is, verify) shipping units, the (external) identification and the shipping material (packing material) must always be transmitted.

E1EDL37-EXIDV

E1EDL37-VHILM

If an available shipping unit is to be created, no contents data (items) must be transmitted. If a delivery is packed, the item number and the packed quantity must be transmitted (use the quantity unit of the delivery item). If you have a batch split, use the actual (external) item number.

E1EDL44-POSNR

E1EDL44-VEMNG

If a shipping unit in a shipping unit is to be verified (multi-step packing), you must specify the (external) identification of the subordinate shipping unit.

E1EDL44-EXIDV

If, at item level, a delivery item and a shipping unit are to be transmitted, the delivery item has the higher priority.
